True Blood Season 4 Ep 10: Burning Down the HouseBy
True Blood opens with Eric and Bill fighting to the death amidst all the blood and guts that are left of the Tolerance Festival that Nan arranged to improve the vampire’s image with the public. I guess that’s not likely to improve now that a lot of the general public have been slaughtered. Eric’s about to stake Bill when Sookie flashes her fairy blast at them and it breaks Antonia’s spell, releasing Eric and bringing back all his memories. He looks at Sookie with old Eric’s eyes along with new Eric’s memories…things won’t be the same again.
Antonia is shocked that her initiative to kill the vampires has not turned out as she planned. She did not want to kill innocent people and she looks appalled then she and Roy vanish. They return to the Moon Goddess with their two vampire drones. Antonia fights Marnie, trying to leave her body because she’s disgusted with the death. She leaves and confronts Marnie about her tactics. Marnie appeals to her desire for revenge against the vampires and Antonia goes back to her host. Meanwhile, Holly and Tara scheme to cast a spell to let them leave the building.
Eric talks to Sookie and tells her that nothing has changed. She tells him that she realizes that when he was about to stake Bill, she knew that she could not live in a world that didn’t have Bill in it. She loves both of them. Eric looks taken aback, he doesn’t know what to do with that information. He wants it to go back to the way it was between the two of them.
Alcide saved Tommy from Marcus and his scummy friends but he’s dying – changing into Sam has messed him up inside. Sam vows revenge for his brother’s death and he and Alcide head over to the motorcycle shop to find Marcus. They end up interrogating one of the creeps who killed Tommy. Luna bursts in freaking out because Marcus took Emma. Just then, Luna’s phone rings and it’s Emma calling her mom. Alcide sees that the call is coming from his own house.
Arlene and Terry find a bottle of V that Andy was using and they are appalled that he has this drug in the house around their children. Terry decides to take matters into his own hands and he makes Andy go out to the woods with him. He tells Andy that he’s got to clean up his act and get off the drugs. Andy fights it, saying he’s not an addict, but Terry’s tactics eventually cause Andy to break down and admit his addiction.
Jason and Sookie go with Lafayette and Jesus to the emporium. Jesus wants to save Marnie because he thinks she is being held hostage by Antonia’s spirit. Little does he know that it’s Marnie who is the hostage taker. Jesus approaches the protective barrier that Antonia has erected and pulls on his ancient brujo lineage to force his way through it. She is pleased that he has made it through and wants to join them.
Holly and Tara’s scheme works and they are able to escape the building and they make a run for it. Jason, Sookie and Lafayette run toward them as Marnie comes up behind, trying to stop them. She catches them and transports Holly, Tara, Sookie, and Lafayette back into the emporium. Jason is left standing, staring at the empty street.
Bill, Eric, Pam, Jessica, and Nan cover themselves in silver chains again in case Antonia casts another spell during the day to force them into the sun. That night, when they get up, they all dress in black, arm themselves to the teeth, and drive over to the Moon Goddess. They look prepared for war as they climb out of their van and march into the street, ready to take on some necromancers.
